Delayed chemo. Go Fund Me launch on Sept 19th

Bruce and I arrived home on Labor Day from a lovely three week visit in Breckenridge.  Thank you, Mom and Jim, for great mountain fun.  Isaac the Forest Troll, rubber duck races, Bandaloop, an amazing vertical dance troup, Tree-0: fun concert in the trees.  And lots of ball tossing for Izzy and way too many hours at Ready Paint Fire, paint your own pottery -- so much fun.  We also had a lovely visit up to SteamBoat Springs with Bob and Sally for a big ol family reunion with Ron, Pat, Scott, Jillian, Eric and Jodie. Mom also arranged for me to meet with several of her friends to tell my story.  The more I share this chapter of my life, the more committed I am to bringing this story to the world.  Most people are rapt with attention and full of questions. This story must be told.  Cannabis is Medicine.  End Prohibition so Science can Prove it.         

I was scheduled to have chemo last Tuesday, but my white blood count was a bit low, so we decided to postpone a week.  Yesterday I had my 16th round of chemo, and I am now in the throes of post chemo CINV.  Let's hope I can manage to keep it just to N (nausea) and not the V (vomiting)  I don't have time for being sick; we are filming with Dr. Bearman this afternoon.  So we will forge ahead with vomit bag in hand.  

I am feeling behind, yet still committed to launching the Kickstarter next Tuesday, Sept 17th.  I will have the page up on Sunday the 15th and will send out a few reminder emails.  The first week of Kickstarter is crucial.  I am relying on you, my network, to blast the campaign with lots of momentum so we can get the attention of Kickstarter staff and hope we get "recommended" and get this campaign to go viral.  More in a few days,

    I hope you have as little of both N and V as possible! It's exciting to think that the Kickstarter campaign is just days away!

    Thanks for the update. A friend's brother is refusing chemo, and he is trying this. I am sending you a link to check it out. Apparently there is some research from his and other's success. Sounds a little far fetched, but he used marijuana and dewormer pills after receiving a less than 3 months to live. He is cancer free today 2 years later. Good luck and wishing you the best as always. Joe and Clarice

    Sorry for the N&V! Sending you strength for the project... We are in Stockholm now, just having spent some time in Iceland. Sounds like a wonderful time in Breckenridge! Peace my dear...
